Nor do I, but I'm having the same problem as you with them, on a PC Mac. 
So I'm working on re-building it.

Yes, we need to be careful about that. maybe .eggs would work better, as 
I think they can check dependencies, but mpkgs are so easy to build and

It's quite easy, at least when everything "just works".

1) Make sure you have the universal build Python

2) get Py2App (from that same site)

3) % bdist_mpkg  ( in the directory where the setup.py for your package 
lives ).

Then look in the "dist" directory for the mpkg.

Matplotlib is trickier, as it requires all sorts of dependencies, both 
Python packages and not. And as you've seen, the versions have to match.

I'm working on it now. I have a written up what I've done in the past, 
it's in the MPL package you can find on pythonmac.org for OS-X 10.9 and 
Python 2.3.5
